"European Capital of Culture" matjung's Profile

Taiwan - 2012

This pic was taken at the Yehliu Geo park in Taiwan.
It is really amazing what mother nature is able to produce when time goes by.
It must have taken millions of years to form these stones.
This place is located at the northern coast of the island.

New Years Eve 2008

Istanbul is the European Capital of Culture in 2010.

As I did not want to wait until 2010, I went there in 2008 and returned in 2009. Spending New Years Eve in Istanbul was a great idea.

What I liked most about Istanbul was the variety of goods, foods and markets. From the spice and gold markets in the center to the shopping malls in Levent.

Malaysia - June 2007 - Malaka

Hi, you may wonder where this windmill is comeing from.
The picture was taken in Melaka, the former capital of Malaysia.

Ireland 2006 - November - Cliffs of Moher

From June 2003 to February 2007 I was living in Ireland.
The Cliffs of Moher is just one of the places I have seen while I was living in this beautilful country with its rubbish capital Dublin.

In the background you can see that they are building a new visitors center for the cliffs of moher.

Japan 2006 - April - Cherry Blossom

Japan was the most far away place I have seen so far. And it was one of my best travel experiences ever.

As usual I did a round trip and organiced everything by myself and virtual tourist members.

Without the help of Volunteer Tourist Guides this trip would never have become such a huge success.

Fancy something to eat, this is what you get in Mt. Koyasan.

Canada 2005 - October - Niagara Falls

I went by slow speed train from New York to Niagara Falls Canada.
The journey was long but scenic. Wathing through the train window one could see a lot of landscape.

I stayed in Niagara Falls for 2 nights. Next time it will be three nights.
There is plenty to see and explore. At night the falls are iluminated.
